Indians Resident Overseas
The Aadhaar card is designed only for people who are resident in India, whatever
their nationality. There is no mechanism for Indian nationals studying or living
overseas to apply for Aadhaar online or through their local Consulates and Embassies.
Students can apply for an Aadhaar card when at home on vacation, but must still
be able to prove their permanent address in India. Aadhaar cards have to be
sent in the post to an address in India and cannot be send overseas. People who
have moved overseas to live permanently will only be able to apply for their Aadhaar
card when or if they move back to India with the intention to stay.
